    Thanks everyone :)

    Aiden, the events leading up to birth are as follows..

    First, you get copulation, and more, and more and more..lol...
    Second, the female will ovulate, the back half of her will swell and she will become round...
    Third, the female will go into a shed cycle...then shed...

    From the that day, the day she sheds, it will be approx. 105 days until she gives birth....although it was 87 days last year....you get some warning about when it will happen as about a week before she is due she will deposit a 'waxy stool' this is our cue to turn the hatchling rack on and get ready :)

    I will gladdly put your name down for one, all being well she will give birth some time around the end of May begining of June....it would be nice to meet you too. How long are you in the UK for?
